Yeah, I can't disagree with this.

While the first series had a great tone, I found the darker and more reality grounded tone to tell a better long reaching story.

And I fucking hate Season 2.
>> No. 67399
I dont know... Digikaizer was all kinds of bad ass and a great idea, to bad they fucked it up...
And for the record, I like that shitty ending!
Why? Well it was the first real ending to a saturday moring show I remmber seeing.
It was not like Sonic SatAM that was like "and they lived happy ever after, OR DID THEY! DUN DUN DUN!" Can't wait for the next season? NOPE! Can'd!
At lest with D2 it was over, Finnished!
And I'm okay with that and happy for them. Okay! Okay.
>> No. 67400
It wasn't just the ending that made me hate Season 2, it was also about half the cast.
Aside from that, a lot of the designs didn't do anything for me either, and the goofy back and forth between the digital world and the real world lost a lot of the appeal of the first season and being lost in the wild.

Season 2 might've been done properly had Ken not been the only kid with a dark spore and under the whole DigiKaizer thing. This is what I'd do.

TK and Kari? Have them be side-characters again. Maybe give their digimon the power to digivolve beyond ultimate later. But for now keep it grounded.

Have Davis be less Tai 2.0 without the things that made Tai interesting and make him more a traditional leader. Have him be hard-focused and a bit devil-may care. But still relatively intelligent and trusting.

Secondly: Don't just have the Dark Spore be a random "THIS IS HOW I TURNED EVIL" plot point for Ken. Make it much bigger and have a darker presence. Say dark-spores can manifest through computers and enter into certain people's minds, thus bringing out their worst attributes through their influence. Have them corrupt several characters throughout the series, then have each overcome their faults, realize where their emotional torments lie and give them a digimon and a digivice in the process.

Hell, have the Crests be a sort of reincarnation deal. Maybe when one team of digidestined have completed some sort of goal or something the crest powers leave them, go into the digital world and just WAIT for another group of kids to take up the crests power which is triggered by a similar event.

Having kids disappear from the real world, enter the digital world possessed by dark spores means that not only do we get to look at each new digidestined individually, their faults and their problems, but we can also give the series some tension by having there be a long-term overarching bad guy who's putting the dark spores in kids, rather than just having a bunch of bad guys appear out of fuck nowhere.

Huh I should write this all down. It'd make a good game or something.

I hate season 2 if for the sheer amount of potential that was wasted over the course of the season.
>> No. 67415
As much as I like digimon on a whole for basing their show around the idea that these digital monsters are somehow keep getting into our world, I'm sad that they never made the company that owns the franchise be the bad guy. I mean how amazing would it be if the corporation that owned the product made themselves out to be the villain of their own merchandise by making all the toys and video games be depicted as tools they use to abuse and capture digimon for your amusement? Like if gamefreak made themselves out to be Team Rocket but competent.

You see the issue with sending that message when your primary audience is still at the age where they don't fully separate fiction and reality, right?
Also, kind of a dumb, overly meta twist, not gonna lie.

I have to be honest. I never liked this series much as a kid at all.
It was hard to find on TV for whatever reason, I think it might've been when Fox Kids was going under and it was at UPN or some shit like that.

But yeah, what turned me off from this was the fact that it told me that the first two seasons were a TV Show/Franchise with in a franchise. It made my ten year old brain angry, how things were invalidated and whatnot. I'm sure there's a good explanation for it now since there's a lot of high praise and all that but I've never looked into it again.
>> No. 78402

>But yeah, what turned me off from this was the fact that it told me that the first two seasons were a TV Show/Franchise with in a franchise.

Well... actually if you understand who Ryo is, and where he came from, as well as the canonical explanation for why he's there then the first two seasons are actually more like a parallel dimension.

Sort of like how DC can have Marvel comics and Marvel can have DC comics. Neither setting is really "fictional", it's just one has it be a cardgame/tvshow/etc.

Also if you're gonna be pissy about that blame Toei. They basically told Konaka that they wanted the cardgame in there a lot more prevalent. I honestly can't think of a better reason for inserting the cardgame into the series than what he gave us.
>> No. 78406
Pretty bitchin'.

Are you talking about translation or missing subtitles? Because I do recall a number of episodes with poor timing or entire paragraphs of speech missing subtitles. I didn't find it enough to be truly lost, but it was quite aggravating.

Personally, I'm glad. Also, I'm also glad someone is translating Re Digitize. I love digimon games.

If anything, you should blame Saban, they were the ones that added those references that turned Adventure into a tv show kids watched, in the original digimon was simply a franchise, of which we can't even be sure there even was an anime.

On that note, I think it's notable how Takato pretty much lived the dream for us, regardless of how unexpectedly painful it turned out to be.
>> No. 79997

I dunno even know when in the show they explicitly state that Digimon Adventure was just a TV show for them.

I think they just mentioned there being a TV show and fans took that to meaning that they were referring to Digimon Adventure.
